Marijuana proponents are condemning Sessions' decision, saying it's a throwback to outdated drug-war policies that unfairly affected minorities, the Associated Press reported.
"We should believe an uproar of public sentiment can change policy", Inslee said. And it's hard to ignore the fact that Mr. Sessions' action would punish larger, bluer states like California, where recreational marijuana became legal last week, and MA, where it's set to be legally available in July.

Sessions has rescinded an Obama-era policy that paved the way for legalized marijuana to flourish in states across the country, creating new confusion about enforcement and use just three days after recreational marijuana became legal in California. "I think that the statement of the Attorney General is that it is still illegal at the federal level and I support that", he said. The general idea was to give users and producers who followed the laws in their states a bit of assurance that federal agents wouldn't be knocking on their doors.

Land said, "I believe that everybody should have access to safe medicine".
In a second statement on Monday, Lelling noted "this is a straightforward rule of law issue" and that Congress has "unambiguously made it a federal crime to cultivate, distribute and/or possess marijuana".
Sessions' move shouldn't have an impact on the state's new program in the short term because an amendment in the federal budget bars the Department of Justice from spending any money to go after state's medical marijuana program.
